Many of us hear that ladybugs are not harmful, and even are beneficial to our property. Ladybugs are small and round. They are red with black dots on their back. Ladybugs can fly, and are most active in the summer months. Their ideal habitat is in moist areas, while they feed off aphids and scale insects. These insects can cause a lot of damage to your garden, and any other vegetation on your property. Ladybugs do a great job in controlling these destructive insects.
Ladybugs can be a nuisance during the winter months because they need shelter. Ladybugs are commonly found in attics and crevasses around your house. Ladybugs are in no way damaging, or harmful to humans or structures.
Treatment can be done on ladybugs if the problem becomes too big, however we recommend you do not treat them because of how beneficial they are to the environment and your property.
